Sindh Govt established health care units in various flood-affected areas

KARACHI: The exceptional monsoon season shattered all previous rainfall records in all Pakistani provinces, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Southern Punjab, and Sindh, forcing millions of families to experience relocation, famine, and health issues.

The Sindh Department of Health has built mobile health care units in various flood-affected districts to address health concerns. 

SIEHS has deployed its 1122 Sindh Rescue Services-operated emergency ambulances in Thatta, Sujawal, Hyderabad, and Larkana. 

In these ambulances, trained Paramedics and Nurses are available to assist in the emergency health care of affected areas.

Currently, fifteen Rescue 1122 ambulances are engaged, each carrying roughly forty nurses who provide first aid and medical treatment to women, children, and adults. 

Diarrhoea, fever, respiratory disorders, skin illness, and malnutrition have been the most prevalent health conditions.

More than 288 individuals were treated in Thatta at mobile camps placed at Thatta centre jail, Ladho, and Khamiso Mallah, while in Sujawal, more than 187 people were treated at mobile camps located at Sorjani band, Monarki band, Karo Gungro, Ranta Village, Belo City, and Dhula Darya Khan Pull.

Teams from SIEHS Larkana at Komrani Pull, DHO VIP Road, Nazar Mula, Rathodero Bypass, and Nodero Bypass camps treated 444 patients. 

In contrast, approximately 93 persons were treated in the Hyderabad District at Rahoki Stop, Mureed Khaskhaili, Tando Jam bypass, and Jamshoro Bypass.

Despite difficult working circumstances and significant hazards, the SIEHS's devoted and committed staff has treated over 1000 patients in the past several days.

In the meantime, the Sindh Health Department has helped the SIEHS team by supplying extra district-level physicians and medications. 

The Sindh Health Department is also helpful in directing and guiding the efficient response to the flood situation.

During these difficult times, pharmaceutical businesses are urged to fulfil their CSR responsibilities by donating medications, bandages, and other medical disposables to SIEHS.
